Mini Medallions Winter Birthday Card ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     Instead of stamping snowflakes on this winter birthday card, I decided to use the Mini Medallions Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp from Red Rubber Designs!

     I took my inspiration from the November Card Sketch Challenge @ with this beautiful bonus sketch!

      The background was done with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magical Sassy Sapphire and some silver sprays. Without attaching it, I placed a large snowflake onto the wood strip of paper, and masked it with silver sprays. Then I lined up the snowflake onto my background and masked it with white gesso. Once dry, I distressed and machine-stitched the edges. Next, I layered it with a snowflake die covered with Stickles, and a leftover flower that I made using my Water Flower Tutorial. I just added some Blending Solution to lighten up the alcohol ink. In the center, I added a chipboard circle covered with gesso, and embossed with the Mini Medallions stamp. For some more sparkle, I added silver glittery branches, and some bling to the middle of my medallion.

     I also embossed another design from the Mini Medallions stamp onto a chipboard circle, placed onto a chipboard snowflake that I covered with gesso, dry painted, and applied some Distress Crazing Medium to. 

     The sentiment was embossed onto a wood banner piece that I also covered with white gesso, using the Sweet Sayings Unmounted Stamp. I finished it off with a mini silver brad.
